Playing Back The Good Old Stuff

Did a little cleaning today and saw my old music CD collection had collected some dust. I thought that it's a perfect day to listen to music that I haven't heard for a long time. Of course not all the songs in every single CD was ripped into my portable devices. It's a good thing that my old stereo is still working.

Listening to them brings me back to the 90's - the pre-MP3 player days. Today I listened to songs by Sheryl Crow, Bjork, Tori Amos, Third Eye Blind, The B52's, The Mamas and the Papas, 10,000 Maniacs, Sunny and Cher, Douglas Throwbridge and Vivaldi. Yeah, I'm quite eclectic when it comes to music.

I remember the time when all I had was the radio as a source for new music. Now I'm glad there are online radios where stations are categorized by genre. There I get to discover new and old artists that are not mainstream here but make music that I really dig. No commercials, no blabbering DJs, and if you don't like the current song just skip to the next. I'm also glad that today's technology has allowed us to find, collect and store music that we like. Ain't life great? What would life be without your own playlist? ^_^
